We here at First Presbyterian Church of La Grange, Texas want to thank you for dropping in to our website. If you are a “frequent flyer” to this page, we hope you will let us know if anything is incorrect or out-of-date. If this is your first time to check us out, we hope that you will go to the various menus and learn more about our mission opportunities, our people, and our programs. My wife Pam and I came to La Grange to retire, but the spiritual energy and people dynamic here drew me out of retirement to be the pastor of this wonderful church!
So look closely, I think you just might find just the place where God wants you to be …
First Presbyterian Church honors Jean McHenry for 25 years service as organist/pianist with the church. Many church members gathered after church Sun. May 17 to honor Jean who has served the church since Mother's Day 25 years ago. Jean's musicality adds so much to the church services and her personality enriches all our lives.
Thank you Jean!!
The First Presbyterian Church of La Grange hosted the annual “Packing Party” this week.
Each year, members of the church collect school supplies for students along the border in Mexico. Without our contributions most of the students would not have anything to work with. The Mexican Government does not provide supplies for these schools located in the colonial and fishing villages. These are one room schools in very poor areas.
Two types of packages are packed. Student packs include lined, plain and construction paper, Spiral note book, pencils, pens, ruler, pencil sharpener, glue stick and colored pencils. Teach packs include the same paper as students, math flash cards, felt tip markers. Each are packed in plastic drawstring bags. This year through the donation of time and supplies, we were able to pack 300 student and 30 teacher packs. The packs will be picked up and delivered by CUPS.

Vacation Bible School Craft Needs
This year’s VBS theme is Adventure of the Treasure Seekers. There will be 5 days of different crafts focusing on these main ideas for children: God loves you, God knows you, God treasures you, God forgives you and God is with you. Our objective at 1st Presbyterian is to encourage children to discover the love of God and Jesus Christ and God’s promises to us. If you have any of the following craft supplies at home or any that you would be willing to contribute, the VBS crew would greatly appreciate them. We are praying that we can reach as many as 40 children in our community, so please pray with us as we anticipate a fun and meaningful ministry.
